Does Your Car Need a Service?

car service

Most modern cars only need servicing once a year, but older cars may require a service up to every 6 months.

For the most accurate information regarding when you should get your unique make or model of car serviced, refer to the manufacturer’s service handbook. In addition to this, the type of service you need will be influenced by how you use your car. For example, if you travel long distances every day, your car may be more prone to tyre wear than a car used for short journeys.

In the event that we identify any additional work needed, we will always discuss it with you prior to going ahead with it. The price you agree with us prior to the service will be the price you pay at the end unless you agree to additional work.

Full Service

Our full service is recommended roughly every 10,000 miles or once a year, depending on manufacturer requirements and previous service history. Its a full check, with filter replacements, level top-ups and all the necessary adjustments. If unsure of your vehicles service requirements or schedule please feel free to contact Lindleys Autocentres and our staff will be able to help.

Interim Service

If you do low mileage we recommend you get an Interim service between your full service every other year. When you book your vehicle in we will check your service history for you and if we feel we can save you money by offering you a shorter service then we will do. An Interim service offers you most of the checks a full service does minus the adjustments and certain filter replacements.

Oil Service

Our Oil service is for customers that do high mileage between their services, it’s designed to give peace of mind and help protect and maintain engine health. Castrol oils are used for all our oil changes as we understand the importance of using the correct oil that is approved by the vehicle manufacturer. We do not cut corners or compromise the health and life of engines by using cheap oils.
